Rogers to Waikato Stud Tim Rowe | 4 months ago

Waikato Stud has announced plans to grow their presence internationally and have appointed Jeremy Rogers as their Australian business development representative.

>> More

“We are always looking at ways to improve and grow our business and to have an Australian representative is something we have been considering for a while,” stud principal Mark Chittick said.

“To have Jeremy back on board as our Australian business development representative is a great way forward for us.

“He has a great knowledge of the Australian industry and he’s well-liked and respected.

“We’re all really looking forward to having Jeremy back as part of the team.”

Prior to returning home for a seven-year stint from 2010 as racing manager for champion trainer Darren Weir, the Victorian-based Rogers was employed in an administrative role for Waikato Stud.

His new position, effective from 12 April, will see him focus on increasing the farm’s presence in Australia and in Hong Kong, China and Singapore.

“My two passions are racing and breeding and to be able to combine the two is just sensational,” Rogers said.

“I’ll be making sure all the clients will be well looked after across the Tasman.

“I’ve always said that if Waikato Stud had a stud in Australia I would work for them for the rest of my life so this is a dream come true.”

Hit A Bomb Will Not Shuttle Tim Rowe | 1 year ago

Spendthrift Farm has announced that Hit A Bomb (War Front) will not shuttle to Australia in 2017 and instead shuttle to South America. >> More

“We did not anticipate such strong late interest in shuttling Hit It a Bomb, and an unforeseen opportunity came about that was too good to turn down,” said B. Wayne Hughes, owner of Spendthrift.

“It was a difficult business decision to send him to South America, and we regret any confusion this may cause.

“I want to make it clear that we will continue to be committed to bolstering our stallion operation at Spendthrift Australia.

“The first key to having mutual success for Spendthrift, the stallion, and the breeder is to make sure we are doing our job by having the right horses in the right places. I believe we will have a lot of the right horses coming to Spendthrift Australia in the future.”

Spendthrift Australia has announced Swear (Redoute's Choice), new for 2017 as a participant in the farm’s renowned “Share The Upside” program. The Victoria-based operation will also stand Warrior’s Reward (Medaglia d'Oro), Jimmy Creed (Distorted Humor) and Hampton Court (Redoute's Choice).
